Monday, May 30 – NO SCHOOL
Dear Olympic View Families and Friends,
We are all saddened by last week’s senseless tragedy in Texas. As a principal who deeply cares for our students, families and staff, it has been difficult for me to find the words to voice my feelings.
At Olympic View Elementary, we must work together to keep our school community safe. A starting point is that if you see something, say something. Discuss with your children that we do not make jokes about harming others. We encourage families to have age-appropriate conversations with your children about what happened in Texas last Tuesday. Our school counselor and school psychologist, are available to provide support for students on campus, but we know that parents and legal guardians are a vital part of a child’s education that extends outside of school hours.
I would like to share two resources with you to support these conversations. Here is a San Diego County Office of Education resource for parents and educators to discuss school shootings: https://www.sdcoe.net/about-sdcoe/news/post/~board/news/post/resources-to-discuss-school-shootings
Another great resource is Sandy Hook Promise: https://www.sandyhookpromise.org/
If you have not yet read Dr. Reyes’ statement, please do so now by clicking on the link here.
Children and educators should be able to go to school free from violence. As we move forward together, I call on our school community to remember that every action begins with each one of us. I urge each of you to take good care of yourselves and your families and to find ways to connect with one another through compassion. Please know that our school can provide resources to any families who feel they need support.
Together, we can provide the comfort and care needed for our children. We pledge to partner with families to move forward and heal. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the school office.
Yours in safety and education,
Lisa Lines, Principal

Residency Verification – Must Be Completed By 6/3
Residency verification will take place online again this year. All students returning to any school in the Chula Vista Elementary School District for the 2022/23 school year are required to show proof of residency at their school of attendance before the start of school in order for their child’s name to be placed on a class list. You MUST prove residency before your child will be placed on a class list for 2022-2023. If you have moved out of our area and would like to continue at Olympic View Elementary, you must contact the office to receive a Zone Transfer document. You will be receiving an email that will contain a unique “Snap Code” for each of your children enrolled at Olympic View and a link to the website where you will be able to update information for your child and upload your residency for the 22/23 school year. You will only receive an email if you have a valid email on file at school. If your email has recently changed, or if you do not receive emails from the district, please email or call the office to update your information at 619-656-2030 or email@example.com. We sent the “Snap Codes” last week. Please make sure to check your emails so that you may complete this promptly. If you have not received your email, please contact the school office.
